A unique and delicious chai that is certainly worthy of its name. This chai is different than many spiced chai teas because it does not have cardamom or ginger, and instead has nutmeg, which creates a distinctively different flavor. The rooibos aren’t really significant in the flavor – I can’t really detect much of the woodsy flavor it imparts, but I can’t say that this tea would be the same without it.

At first it tastes like a nice blend of black teas. The rose isn’t overpowering, and neither is the vanilla. Instead, it is combined in such a way to be a very nice mix of flavors with a little sweetness and a little floral taste. But the real kicker is the cinnamon!

A very creamy taste with a delightful caramel-y note. The black tea base used in this blend is a pleasant tasting black Ceylon tea.

As butterbeer is not an actual beverage, but part of a fictional series, I have never actually tasted a butterbeer.

Chai Americaine from Let’s Do Tea


becky

I think this tea is named well. It is definitely “Americanized.” That is not necessarily a bad thing; it just means that some of the sharp Indian spices have been slightly toned down. I also have some suspicions that that “flavoring” is some kind of sweetener (because you know how us Americans love sweet stuff). I didn’t find the tea overly sweet mind you, it just had a little added sweetness which might have also come from the spices.

It does smell like rich chocolate, but tastewise, the chocolate is quite light, almost elusive, dancing in and out behind the rich spices.

The slight tanginess the bergamot lends to this blend is a beautiful citrus touch which helps define this tea as “brisk”. However it isn’t so brisk that its bitter, in fact this Earl Grey retains a smooth quality which is sleek and velvety. A great “everyday” tea!

I’m not really tasting the black tea, but I’m quite glad it’s there to give me a little bit of caffeine. Overall the flavor is mellow and toasty. It is very pleasant and unique. I added a little sugar and milk to the brew, and it certainly hints at coffee.
